  • Carioca

    This is one of Artie Shaw's most memorable charts, and simply a joy to play. Opening with a short 6 measure half time statement, the drums then double the tempo and away we go.  The arragement has great sectional interplay, plenty of plunger action in the brass, and several rousing shout choruses at the end, culminating in a final Clarinet flourish. The Shaw & Pastor solos (for Clarinet & Tenor) are written out in full, and there are no sax doubles. The reeds are scored for CAATT. Included is an extra Baritone part, making the section CAATB and giving you more flexibility in deciding which player takes the Clarinet solo line. Duration 3'10". Learn More
  • Cerezo Rosa (Cherry Pink)

    Cerezo Rosa, or Cherry Pink & Apple Blossom White as it is otherwise known, is probably Perez Prado's most well known piece. In essence, it's a Trumpet solo with big band backing, & is instantly recognisable for the valved & lipped slur/scoop at the start of the soloists phrase. We have written the solo part for the 4th Trumpet. All of the rhythm parts are written out in full, though your Pianist & Guitarist are equally free to play their own interpretation from the chords provided. The lead Trumpet has to reach a high E once, & some high D's with an option to scream to high F.  No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Cheek to Cheek

    Ella Fitzgerald Big Band Vocal Chart. This a transcription of the original Paul Weston chart. The vocal part is written "as sung" by Ella Fitzgerald. Learn More
  • Cherokee

    Cherokee was the first big hit for Charlie Barnet & his Orchestra, though when Billy May arrived for the 1939 recording session & handed out the parts nobody seemed that impressed with it! This is a good Tenor feature, & a straight forward chart to play. The arrangement is full of interest. Glissing Trombones, Trumpets with wah-wah plungers, & some rich voicings in the Saxes & ensemble sections. This chart is the one that set the standard for all subsequent arrangements of this Ray Noble chart. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Cherry

    Cherry is a classic from the Harry James Orchestra & a great chart for showcasing one of your Trumpet players. The original arrangement was done with strings, but we have replaced the string lines with saxes, to make the chart playable by a regular line-up. All of the solos (for Trumpet, Trombone & Alto) are fully written out, though we have included the chords should your players wish to improvise. This is a very rare chart, & we are delighted to offer it to you. There are no sax doubles. The Trumpet solo is on the 2nd part & the Trombone solo is on the 2nd part. Learn More
  • Chicago

    Here is Benny Goodman's 1947 hard swinging version of Fred Fisher's enduring classic. (Please don't confuse it with the earlier, and more predictable, 1934 Henderson chart). This later version, whilst still very Goodman in style, has more clearly defined sectional work, is less reliant on background riffs to maintain the pulse, and gives more solo space to your players. It features solos for Piano, Clarinet, Alto, Trumpet and your Trombone section. Whilst the brass is scored for 8 voices, the chart is playable if you only have 3 Trombones in the band. Saxes are written for AATTB, with the Clarinet solos on Alto1. The Trumpet solo is written on the second part and cued on 1,3 & 4 too. Learn More
  • Chicago

    A Tommy Dorsey/Sy Oliver classic, beautifully transcribed by Alan Glasscock from the 1945 Dorsey/Oliver/Sentimentalists recording. This chart features Trombone, Trumpet, Clarinet, Tenor & of course your male vocalist and backing group, although it is perfectly singable with just a solo vocal instead. We have noted the chart "as played" by the Dorsey band, the brass ranges are fairly high Trumpets 123 to at least Bb, with option to high D, & 1st Trombone to high C. Alto 2 is written to double Clarinet & takes the solos. The Tenor solo is written on Tenor 1, & trumpet solos on Trumpet 2.   Learn More
  • Chicken Reel

    This is a rare chart from the Glenn Miller Band, which fills and builds to a rousing cliax.  A great little chart trhats good for dancers too. Learn More
  • Christmas Song (Ella)

    This is our transcription of Ella Fitzgerald's wonderful rendition of The Christmas Song, also known as Chestnuts Roasting. This chart is scored for vocal solo, 5 saxes, rhythm and optional vibraphone only. We have also included a solo Trumpet part in lieu of the vibes. This is an easy chart to play and will be instantly recognised and appreciated by every audience. There are no sax doubles and the vocal line is scored "as sung" by Ella. The vocal key is Ab throughout. Learn More
  • Christopher Columbus

    A landmark chart from the Benny Goodman Orchestra. Goodman used many of Fletcher Henderson's arrangements for his band, but in the case of Christopher Columbus he played his own version, probably because the tune was Henderson's theme. We have adapted the Goodman original to suit an 8 brass line-up, & have transcribed all of the original solos (Clarinet, Trombone & Trumpet), though your players can improvise on the chords if they wish. The saxes are scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. Learn More
  • Chu Cho

    Chu Cho is a wonderful Latin number, from the pen of the great Paquito D'Rivera, written for Mario Bauza and his Afro-Cuban Orchestra. This tune simply oozes style, & also offers a chance to show off the improvisation skills for your lead Alto (or Tenor), Baritone & lead Trombone. A fine addition to any library. Learn More
  • Ciribiribin

    The solo Trumpet chart by which all others are measured. Though it can also be used as a solo vehicle for Clarinet or Soprano Sax instead. This transription is the 1939 classic in full, from the classically inspired intro, the Mediterranean waltz section, the little Baroque bridge, the Trumpet Cadenza and the fast swing second half.   Duration 2'30". Learn More
  • Clarinade

    Mel Powell wrote this piece for Benny Goodman. The chart is full of rich, flowing texture and has a superb harmonic structure, yet is still a thumping swing number. Aside from an 8 measure Piano solo the chart is an out and out Clarinet feature. However, it is not easy. Your Clarinet player will need to be very nimble figured to get it right, as playing in the keys of E and F# at 240 beats a minute is quite a challenge,and the band will need to be tight and have good intonation too. The arrangement is scored for 8 Brass and 5 reeds - Clarinet, Alto, 2 Tenors and Baritone. Tenor 1 doubles Clarinet.  Duration 2'40". Learn More
  • Clarinet a la King

    A fab. chart from the Goodman band written by Eddie Sauter. The chart is harmonically very innovative, & shows glimpses of the sort of writing that Eddie Sauter produced later on in collaboration with Bill Finegan. The Clarinet & Piano solos are written out in full & all dynamics & articulations have been included on all the parts, because of this is one chart that simply won't work if played at the same volume throughout! We have augmented the Brass to 4+4 & the reeds are scored C/A/T/T/B. There are a couple of quick sax doubles - Baritone on Alto & 2nd Alto on Clarinet. Learn More
  • Clementine

    Calling all male vocalists! Clementine is simply great fun. This Bobby Darin version is in a similar style to his better known Mack the Knife, with successive half-step modulations, & a band backing that builds & builds to a huge finish. We have accurately notated Bobby's vocal line & phrasing, & written the rhythm parts as-played, where they are most important to the feel of the chart. No sax doubles. Learn More
  • Come Rain or Come Shine

    One of Johnny Mercer's most enduring & enchanting songs. Come Rain or Come Shine is a beautifully crafted arrangement from the pen of John Ferguson, full of lush voicings & rich in tonal colour. This chart is a real 'torchlight' tune - great for the last set of the evening. The band never overwhelms the vocalist, yet the scoring is full of expression & great dynamics. There is a solo spot for Trumpet 2, a couple of cameo solo leads for 1st Alto, & there are no sax doubles. The brass ranges are moderate, with lead Trumpet to a top C, making the chart playable by most bands. Learn More
  • Concerto for Clarinet Part 1

    Here is Part 1 of Artie Shaw's stunning Concerto for Clarinet. Following a big tutti opening comes a stylish Clarinet cadenza intro, with band backing & solo Piano fills. The Piano then picks up into 8-beat Boogie style with a 24 bar solo, answered by the Clarinet. Solos too for Trumpet, Trombone, Alto & Tenor with a final Clarinet solo flourish.  The whole piece is scored for Clarinet, 2 Altos, 2 Tenors, 8 Brass & 4 Rhythm. All solos are fully written out. Learn More
  • Concerto for Clarinet Part 2

    Here is Part 2 of Artie Shaw's stunning Concerto for Clarinet. The chart opens with four stylish Clarinet cadenzas, after which the drummer picks up the tempo with a floor-tom solo, joined by solo Clarinet for 40 measures. Briefly into 3/4 time for band chord stabs, the Clarinet & Drum solo continues. Another time shift for more stabs, then three tutti swing choruses to a false finish. The clarinet solo wraps things up with a further four cadenza passages. 'This is a very challenging work for solo clarinet. The saxes are 2 Altos & 2 Tenors. The Clarinet range is up to super C. Learn More
  • Corner Pocket

    Written by the unsung hereo of the Count Basie band, Freddie Green & it's title is a reference to the place that Green called his own - the corner pocket of the rhythm section.We have transcribed this chart from the "Basie in London" album but have adapted the chart slightly to make it suitable for 8 brass. There are ad-lib solo spots from Trumpets 1&2 & Tenor 1. Basie's piano solos are written out "as-played" as is the last 8 measures of the lead Trumpet solo because it suggests the theme for the final shout chorus at the end of the piece.. There are no sax doubles. Learn More
  • Cow Cow Boogie

    Ella Mae Morse Big Band Girl Vocal Chart. This arrangement relies on a rock steady left hand from the Pianist, to play the boogie-woogie style riffs that rumble on throughout the number and give it its distinctive groove. We have also written out the original Trombone and Trumpet solos which fit so well with the chart.  There are no sax doubles. Learn More
